Chocolate Tart Crust

  • Yield: 1 (9 or 10-inch tart crust)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

Directions

  • Sift the flour, sugar, cocoa, and salt into a large bowl. With your fingers, incorporate the butter pieces into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in the egg to make a soft dough. Flatten the dough into a disk, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and place in the refrigerator to rest for at least 1 hour before using.
